Antagonist

Character Role Analysis

Lengel

Lengel is Sammy's boss, the manager of the A&P. He is the party pooper, or antagonist, because he spoils everybody's good time by telling the girls they aren't dressed "decently." He directly antagonizes our protagonist Sammy by threatening him with a ruined reputation if he quits his job.
